If you're planning to visit Columbia State Historic Park, City Hotel is an excellent historic building you can actually stay in, dine in, and enjoy libations in. The saloon is decorated as it might have been during the gold rush, particularly an elegant back-bar. It is small, but it seems like there's always enough room. They can make any drink... More

Had a great night here. The bartenders were lovely and the locals we got talking to were passionate about their town and good company for general chit chat that night.

The restaurant is serving great lunches with a fine touch of class. Wait staff is very professional. My wife and I must have lunch there every Wednesday. Sometimes we make a special Friday too! It may be "bar food" (soon they will be serving more regularly in the main dining hall), but it's a delightful teaser for the best yet... More

This charming bar is located on the first floor of the Gold Rush-era City Hotel in historic Columbia. It is the perfect venue for adventurous travelers looking for a place to spend an evening savoring the Gold Rush atmosphere and meeting some colorful local characters, including a Mark Twaine impersonator. Drinks are generous, sitting is comfortable, and the wine list... More
